Shadow Love

xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxxo




You must know....we are not mushy or gushy {except when we are watching Pride & Prejudice}, and Valentines is not a real important holiday to us, however, when you have a retail store, you are expected to carry a bit of pink, red, hearts & love stuff.

This year we had decided to go with color - pink and red vintage linens, quilts and adorable floral dishes, with new photo books, and bags mixed in for Cupid's day.

Things that looked the part....but are not screaming "Happy Valentines". We did, however, do one thing - we stepped out of our "comfort zone" and did a little craft....we were almost scrap booking...yikes! Don't laugh...this was our first attempt to use scrapbook papers & grommets {it involved putting a small hole in our counter top - oops!}. On our silver sticks we placed our paper hearts to greet everyone who walks through the door - and there....in the midst of our Valentine tree......were shadows ~ so worth doing again!!

Don't forget to stop by Hey Harriet for more Lovely shadows this weekend!

What a heartfull of shadows you have. They're lovely... §:-)
And I meant it. Can't wait the Valentine's Day. The 24th year anniversary, when I met my hubby the first time.

Cheers!

Hey Harriet said...

Oooh how sweet! I'm not much of a mushy or gushy type either but I love these.

Do you guys actually have a holiday over there for Valentine's Day? I'd be a lot more mushy & gushy about the whole celebration if we had a day off work for it ;)

These are delicately, sweet. They are definitely a good balance between mushy and love:)

Oh, those are so delicate & pretty! I'm going to be posting one similar to this in the next day or two, only you print it out on your printer. Maybe you could use them in your shop, too. :)

This is so airy & sweet! And I really like your new banner!
